In all honesty, the YZF600R (Thundercat to those over the big pond) just plain shreds. 130 horsepower? Nope. Sub 400lb dry weight? Sorry. 10 second quarter miles? Not even close.
An awesome do-all motorcycle that has a bulletproof motor, brakes that rival almost all liter bikes, and bodywork that makes the other 600's a little long in the tooth? Definately.
For those who crave comfort, style and are smart enough to realize they don't need a TRACK bike for the STREET, the YZF is the ride of choice.
